Aidan, aged 12, and his father need our help. Aidan, a youngster at Oak Middle School, is getting bigger and busier by the day. His single father loads and unloads his heavy chair multiple times throughout the day and lifts Aidan to and from that chair. It is difficult and exhausting.
To support his son's care, Mr. Garcia frequently has to miss work to get Aidan to school and doctor's appointments. With the much-needed purchase of a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, Aidan's father can bring more normalcy to their hectic day and Aidan can use his power wheelchair more often.

In May 2021, the Ramirez family, including three chair-bound children, received a much-needed full-sized wheelchair-accessible van provided by Aero Mobility and funded by Muriel's Angels.
Transportation for a family of five is no easy feat so imagine traveling with three chairs. The Ramirez's are such a kind, loving family and we are enjoyed being a part of their newfound freedom.
Sandra Ramirez, a smart as a whip 12-year-old girl, was born with Spina Bifida. It's a condition that requires an adaptive accessible vehicle to travel comfortably with her family of four. Muriel's Angels provided funding and support for the family to get a wheelchair-accessible minivan from Aero Mobility.
In October 2020, Muriel's Angels, with support from Aero Mobility gifted a customized wheelchair-accessible van for the Santos Family. Both Maria and Samantha Santos suffer from Muscular Dystrophy, confining them to their wheelchairs. The Santos' new mobility van is customized to accommodate both wheelchairs being able to travel together in comfort and with room left for the whole family. Aero Mobility is honored to partner with Muriel's Angel in seeing this family back on the road.
